Fond Memories, Hot Show
I attended this concert with my So Cal friends. We picked up a Coors party ball for tailgating in our station wagon. Remember those beach balls full of beer? That hit the spot on such a hot day. Owsley were rumored to be in attendance, as some fine orange blotter was circulating.
We managed to squeeze up front on Jerry's side for the first set. I saw Bill Walton dancing his ass off next to the on-stage soundboard on Phil's side. I think this was the reason for Bobby's "Can we have a moment of silence for the Celtics?", since Walton played for the Celtics at the time. Walton used to bring the whole team to Worcester Centrum shows.
After the concert, the security let anyone walk into the VIP parking lot behind the stage. I saw Timothy Leary getting into a big, black Mercedes.
I am fairly sure this recording is NOT an Audience tape. It has all the details of the KPFK-FM broadcast, and less bright than the other soundboard, Nick's Picks, available on the Archive.

just a question...
Or maybe a little more...
Is this the show that was broadcast live over KPFK Pacifica Radio? I remember THAT show for sure... couldn't get down to Carson, and my pad was recently emptied after a breakup... so just me, two big ol' speakers and an empty lathe & plaster 100 year old room in downtown Pasadena California... powder blue skies, Jacaranda trees out front beyond the Camelia hedge... me sitting in the open double window by Dad's enormous Rubber Tree...smokin' something green and lushious, here comes Crazy Fingers and I'm gone man, gone... look up and here's Officer Friendly of the PPD wanting to know what's got into me thinking I can just blast this noise all over the neighborhood like that??! So I get indignant and tell him "look, get real man... it's like 3:00 in the afternoon! And it isn't like 4-lane Del Mar Boulevard is exactly QUIET. Do you have kids? I mean look at these big diesel trucks just screaming and belching toxic waste all down the street right there at a little kid's lungs level... why don't you arrest some of them? This music isn't going to kill anyone for sure, but here you are looking to shut down the good vibes while you ignore all the noise and fumes in the name of Industry... " Mr. Policeman just stood there staring at me like I was nuts... I mean I AM nuts, but compared to what? Anyway, he left. I turned it down for a little while after he left, then finished the show... Thanks KPFK. Good Ol' Grateful Dead gospel good time religion for the masses, bringin' it all back home.

I'll tell you exactly what we're all gonna do
Ahh, 1990 with Brent. Sounds so fucking good. A match made in heaven.
Holy shit guys, great job. Huge pull from a massive killer show. There are definitely some flubs, but the energy at this show was off the charts, and you guys caught it. Congratulations.
Jerry's guitar was louder than a jet engine. Huge speaker stacks pummeled GD onto a blazing sunny 97 degree L.A. Cinco de Mayo Derby Day party fest. The second set was indeed seamless classic rocking Grateful Dead.
One of the best Dear Mr. Fantasy I saw ...Brent sings his ass off and Jerry leads just shred. And to be clear it was Derby Day and Cinco De Mayo. And they played both The Race Is On and Mexicali Blues. It was one of those kind of days!
And while the Help is all screwed up, one of my favorite parts of this show was right after the Race Is On Jerry just nails that classic Help On The Way lick. Oh that sounded sooo good that day.
Check out Jerry's guitar work on this Truckin > Fingers > Playin > Uncle John's circa 1990. Absolutely killer stuff. Happy trails.
